Calling all East Zone Residents: It's time to vote!

Posted: 08-01-2012

The third East Zone meeting is tonight, and it’s time for friends, parents and neighbors to get together and identify one goal for your community! Believe 2 Become is all about supporting our children’s educational future, and over the last two meetings the community has worked hard to identify goals that would help children succeed. Now it’s time to vote for the one goal that you think would be best for your community.

So let your voice be heard! It’s never too late to join this process, and it’s never too late to show you believe in the children in your community. Your dedication and your presence is an inspiration, and your vote is essential. Help children succeed in school, work, and life by casting your vote tonight.

Here are the 4 Community Goals that will be voted on tonight:

1. Children have academic support and out-of-school programs to improve their learning skills.

2. Parents are fully supported to participate in their children’s education.

3. Every child has a mentor

4. GRPS schools and systems are the best in West Michigan.

We want to see your face in the place tonight! Campus Elementary, 710 Benjamin SE. Doors open at 5pm and a delicious dinner will be served. There will be childcare available, and everyone will have a chance to win exciting prizes!
